When I saw this morning that Revolution Softwareâ€™s classic point-and-click murder-mystery adventure game Broken Sword was actually a Top Trending topic on Twitter, I couldnâ€™t quite believe it! I already knew that the iPhone and iPad had revitalised the point-and-click genre, but I hadnâ€™t realised it had actually made it as trendy as Justin Bieber! After a little further investigation though, it turned out that the reason for all the Broken Sword hysteria was that it is actually todayâ€™s free gift in Appleâ€™s 12 Days of Christmas promotion. As with all the giveaways, you donâ€™t have to have the 12 Days App to get the gift, simply follow the link below to the App Store. And, itâ€™s not just the iPhone game thatâ€™s free, itâ€™s the iPad HD version too, so a great treat for iPad owners, as the iPad version boasts substantial graphical improvements, as well as an exclusive bonus: a digital version of the Broken Sword comic, illustrated by Watchmen co-creator Dave Gibbons. The lavish electronic comic - never issued digitally before - has to be earned by discovering six new hidden features buried within the game.
